Spleen is an one-man project from Serbia which mixes dark ambient and atmospheric rock. Detest is an epic concept album dealing with the theme of misanthropy. It starts with an hypnotic ritual sequence, but later tracks also contains lots of industrial rock elements. All along the album, bleak drones, crushing guitar riffs, pounding rythms and haranguing voices join their forces to take the listener into a world of morbid fixations and reclusive anger . If you are not afraid to explore the... Topics: dark ambient, industrial, Spleen, eg0cide
Icoste is a solo project of electronic musician Stéphane Jeanin from Belmont, USA. Dysthymia is one of his most experimental works to date. This amazing album has an overall opressive and dark tone expressed through various means : eerie floating voices, mysterious drones, swirling alien pads that sometimes turn into noisy electronic storms. The whole forms a deep sonic experience that becomes more and more powerful track after track, culminating with the complex and crushing rythmical...

The use of samples from movies is quite common in industrial / dark ambient - it even became a cliché. Eurovision über Alles (a side project of french one-man project Sobria Ebrietas ) also use samples , many samples in this soundtrack without a movie - but in a very different way, radical, orginal. A kind of IDN (Intelligent Dramatic Noise) for sick minds ? Topics: dark ambient, experimental, industrial, noise, Eurovision über Alles
Subside Call is a french duo who creates an original atmospheric (but not necessarily quiet) music, with industrial & ethnic influences. Eg0cide is glad to release their first (long) EP : Leaving for thrills. A brillant mix of hypnotic beats, catchy melodies & voice with subtle sound textures in the background.

N. Fushigi is relatively recent one-man project based in Japan. Vocalist, pianist, guitarist, composer, his first album Terrorism was firstly self-published and we thought it deserves more exposure. This is a powerful work that combines various sonic nuances (industrial rock, darkwave, dark ambient) within a thrilling narrative structure (the author says it's an album "about dark places and dark stories centered around three main pieces called "Digressions" that depict various...

After the the recent and rather droney/abstract Movements in Decay and the compilation Presenting the Past (which documented his early industrial roots), Stephen Surreal aka UNUNE offers another impressive album on eg0cide. This new version of the previously self-released Stone Swan Songs (containing alternative mixes and 2 long bonus tracks) could be considered as (one of) the missing link(s) between the two albums mentioned above. It was put together between 2011 / 2013 in 3... Topics: dark ambient, drone, experimental, industrial, ~UNUNE~, eg0cide
The only sound source used by TGBTS is guitar (often prepared and processed by some software treatments) to create dissonant experimental tunes and foggy dark soundscapes. Tracks available here were selected and compiled in end of april 2007, from 5 or 6 hours of ugly lo-fi crap recorded between december2006 and april 2007. They have many flaws in playing and/or recording but TGBTS has decided to make them available as the most representative (and hopefully less annoying) pieces of its new...

Sobria Ebrietas is the main sound project of Bertrand Barbier since 1997. It gathers a rather varied range of musical elements : minimalist and/or eastern flavored (to our ears) melodic compositions, experimental dark ambient, noise bursts, , groovy electro-industrial rhythms... Nevertheless after listening to media res, a compilation covering 15 years in 2H30, you might notice the paradoxical cohesiveness of Bertrand's rich soundwork, who carefully selected 25 of his favorite tracks for...

Let's starts the new year with one of our fidel contributors: CDRX. His new album The purgatory's public swimming pool is a captivating subterranean soundscape. This time some noisy / industrial-flavoured touches have been included, and the final result is rather dark and gritty, but with a very cohesive atmosphere despite of its heterogenous components. Topics: ambient noise, dark ambient, drone, industrial, soundscapes, CDRX, eg0cide
Supposedly dead, the stillborn ghosts (eg0cide S.A., Stillborn Blues & the ghost between the strings) have been awaken last year by Ayato's electronic sorcery, who even managed to make them groove. (stillborn dub (2011)) . The eg0cidian zombies have liked this treatment enough to stay out of their graves - and ask new sonic flesh to Ayato (mostly vinyl-based rythmic structures) that they have overdubbed with various instruments. Final mixes of the resulting wasted shots have been realized... Topics: Ayato, Stillborn Ghosts, Eg0cide S.A., stillborn blues, the ghost between the strings,...
The inscrutable and contrarian Tribe of Astronauts wishes to share this very personal collection of soothing sounds for spacefarers, the melodies of which were first transmitted over alien frequencies and intercepted via a particularly sensitive set of silver-mercury tooth fillings. There are so many facets to this international and interstellar collective of sound artists, the nature of which is presently classified TOP SECRET, but which may some day be leaked accidentally on purpose. This is... Topics: ambient, anonymous, conceptual, drone, experimental, industrial, soundscape
